About Michelle

I was such a good girl growing up. As the eldest of 4 children and the eldest grandchild on both sides I was the first person in my family to go to university. I had all the weight of expectations on me. Of how I should live my life. And I always felt that perhaps I wasn't able to be the real me. I didn't even know who the real me was. I felt that I had to spend my life navigating weird rules and behaving like I thought I should behave.

It wasn't until I had my ADHD diagnosis that things started making sense. Is it any wonder I chose the profession I chose? As a Psychologist I am intrigued with the question, was I drawn to this as I wanted to understand me?

So armed with this new information, I set about figuring out what was me and what was ADHD. When I figured that out there was something else. 

My Good Girl Conditioning. This big blob of WTF.

So fast forward 2 years, a book and a serious amount of deprogramming from my Good Girl I'm on a mission to help women and girls do the same.

PSYCHOLOGIST & COACH

I'm a Chartered Organisational Psychologist and Coach, Author, and co-founder of a couple of businesses. AND a mum in a delightfully neurodiverse family.

 

I'm at my happiest when I'm supporting wonderful women, creating courses, programmes, webinars and facilitating positive change in my clients. 

 

I'm good at spotting the unique strengths in the people around me and championing them to put them into action. I love meeting new people, connecting humans, creating communities, understanding and getting to know people well. 

 

My clients tell me that working with me is fun, and I'm great at creating a safe place for humans to explore. I am curious, playful, sensitive, intuitive and have a deep understanding of positive psychology and personal development. 

Helping people positively transform their lives is the most rewarding part of my job.

HOW I WORK

I draw on 20+ (eek) years of being an Organisational Psychologist and applying my knowledge in skills in lots of different situations - leadership and organisational development, employee selection and assessment, coaching and personal development within big corporates, public sector organisations and SMEs, as both an employee and as an external consultant.  

When you're working with me, I help you figure out what you want, help get out of your comfort zone, and grow along the way. I am here to help you with your own journey—to help you design your own ideal life by rediscovering your courage to be the person you want to be, in order to create what you want to create.
